Pescetarianism Information

Pescetarianism is the practice of a diet that includes seafood, and excludes other animals. In addition to fish and/or shellfish, a pescetarian diet typically includes some or all of vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, beans, eggs and dairy. The Merriam-Webster dictionary dates the origin of the term "pescetarian" to 1993 and defines it to mean: "one whose diet includes fish but no meat".

Pescetarian is probably a neologism formed as a portmanteau of the Italian word pesce and the English word "vegetarian". The Italian word is pronounced , while the English neologism is commonly pronounced /ˌpɛskɨˈtɛəriən/, with a /sk/ sound, thus differing from pronunciations of similar terms in English and Italian.

Pesce in turn derives from the Latin piscis, which has the form pisci- when it serves as a prefix, as it often does in scholarly terms , or "piscivore" /ˈpɪsɨvɔr/)(a sub-set of carnivores)
